Default Left overs

OK, so awhile back we talked about a snake pattern and I ordered some tails and heads to ty some. They come in a 3 pack I belive maybe 5. I used one of the heads to make a popper and had a tail leftover. Setting at my desk last night I looked up and seen the tail and thought what am I gonna use that thing for, this is what I came up with.
Hook- Mustad 340111 1/0
thread-black kevlar
Body- blue rabbit
Tail- black snake tail
eyes- chrome x-large dumbell eyes
I layed a thraed base and then cut about 1/3 of the thick end of the tail off
after tying on I tied the eyes in and used a few dropps of Zap-A-Gap on each
after letting that dry I tied in the rabbit fur and wrapped it around the hook and eyes, finnished the head and put a little cement on and it was done.

Thanks guys, I'll let ya know what it does. The only thing I can see bad is that the tail is twisted with copper wire so its kinda stiff. I have a couple snake flies that the tail is alot more supple, I would like to find some more tails like that and ty this fly.
